Keyboard Graphic

I received an e-mail from another teacher asking if I knew of a long keyboard graphic. I developed one a while back for use in my studio and thought I’d post it here. You can download a pdf file that contains 4 keyboard graphics similar to the one pictured below. (The file should be printed on 8.5 x 14 ” paper.) Of the three others included in the file, one is black and white with the sharp/flat names written on the black keys. One is all white and one is white with the sharp/flat names written on the black key spaces.

Here’s another similar file and picture, but the keyboards are a little shorter and can be printed on 8.5 x 11″ paper.
